SEOUL, June 24 (Korea Bizwire) — LG Uplus Corp., a major South Korean telecom operator, said Thursday it had developed a new technology to prevent the hacking of intelligent CCTV systems in collaboration with Internet of Things (IoT) security specialist ICTK Holdings.
Intelligent CCTV refers to an artificial intelligence (AI) service that analyzes video images taken by high-resolution CCTV cameras to identify individuals by their faces, and to detect and issue a warning when there are emergency situations.
If intelligent CCTV systems are hacked, it can lead to the leakage of videos and images containing sensitive private information.
To prevent hacking, LG Uplus applied a physical unclonable function (PUF) virtual private network (VPN) between CCTV cameras and the main server.
The mobile carrier plans to complete the demonstration of the technology by October of this year and commercialize it through the establishment of equipment infrastructure, including servers that can deal with 100,000 CCTV cameras, at its Internet Data Center in Seoul.
